Russell Westbrook leaves game vs. Clippers with apparent hand injury

Oklahoma City Thunder fans collectively held their breaths as Russell Westbrook stormed off the court against the Los Angeles Clippers Thursday night after appearing to injure his right hand. It's not entirely clear how Westbrook got injured or how serious the injury, but the point guard headed to the locker room in a huff, even getting into it with a fan on his way.  The Thunder did not provide an immediate update, but said Westbrook was questionable to return.  More to come.  Feature photo...

Clippers Hold Off Thunder In 93-90 Opening Night Win

Rowan Kavner LOS ANGELES – A Clippers team known for its athletic offensive displays and prowess used its defense to hold off a late-surging Thunder team in the regular season opener at STAPLES Center.
